Whenever you travel in Paris with your dog, hike on the beach, or travel in an RV with your dog,stay hydrated all the time. The dogs are more sensitive to thirsty than human being, they need more water. While on the traveling way, it is difficult to find safe water. So the best idea is to prepare water in advance. There are so many dog water bottles on the market. You can choose anyone by your own opinion. But the most important issue when you are making the choice is safety, which means both green and Eco-friendly. This guide will help you to know better with the safety issue of the dog water bottles.
Materials are the most important for an Eco-friendly dog water bottle. The most ideal material is with these features: no-toxic, easy to wash, durable with high temperature (some materials release toxic in high temperature environment).
Actually it is quite easy to find which material is safe. You can check the bottles for people drinking. The materials of the human water bottles are still good for dogs. Here we list some normal materials which is best for dog water bottles: Stainless steel 304, Tritan plastic. These two are expensive but perfect safe. PC plastic is still safe and durable with high temperature. PET plastic is good in normal use, but it cannot be put in hot water (it will release toxic and shrink).
It is glad to find that some of the dog water bottles are with certifications from test lab, such as FDA in US, LFGB in German. These dog water bottles are with good quality and endorsed by these well reputation test labs. If you cannot make decision to choose your ideal dog water bottle, choose the one with certifications. It will not be a bad choice to choose a good quality product.
Dog water bottle is still a bottle. A bottle which is for traveling should not leak water. If the water leaks out, it is not only make your bag wet but also let the water engaged with bacteria. The polluted water which will be kept in the bottle for several hours will cause sick.
Not wasting water is important for an Eco-friendly product. When dogs drink water from dog water bottle, there is always some water left in the trough. If these water could be flow back to the bottle, it is perfect.
The trough of dog water bottles should be kept clean without any pollution. So, is it easy to wash? Is it could be kept untouchable of the pollution? Is it smooth and without any sharp edge to hurt the tongue of dogs? These topics should be considered when we are choosing a dog water bottle.

Key words: filter, leak-proof key
Petkit Portable dog water dispenser is an interesting product. It has a filter inside to clean water. But when we are preparing to walk out with the dog water bottle, of course we will put safe water into it. So the filter is a little bit useless with my own opinion. Anyway, when we are re-draining water back to the bottle, maybe the filter could do its job. The size of Petkit dog water dispenser is 9oz and 15oz. And it also has a leak-proof key to prevent the button be opened by accident.
Key words: big capacity, easy to use
The Tuff Pupper PupFlask Portable Water Bottle is quick and easy to use when you’re on the go. This travel water bottle for dogs is offered in 27-ounce and 40-ounce options and is made from stainless steel. The trough is made of silicon and is folded when it is not in use. If you want to feed dog water, just fold and open the trough and screw the cover, the water comes out. My concerning is that the soft silicon trough could be damaged if dogs chew the trough. And if the fragments are swallowed by the dogs, it could be a disaster. Any way, the capacity and the size is very nice for a long traveling.
Key words: Foldable, Big capacity, Bike traveling

But the water could not be re-drained, and the PET material cannot be durable in hot climate. Do not put it in dishwasher, the hot water will damage the bottle.
